Prayer for the swift rebirth of Shamar Rinpoche

Composed by His Holiness Karmapa Thaye Dorje

The Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of limitless purelands,
Their wisdom and compassion embodied by the direct and indirect assembled Gurus, to them
And to the Three Jewels and dharma protectors, the true source of refuge, With one-pointed devotion, I supplicate with my three doors.

The embodiment of all Buddhas, the lord of Dewachen,
Emanating in boundless, immeasurable manifestations,
Lord Chökyi Lödro, the embodiment of the Three Families,
May you appear on the crown of the head of privileged sentient beings!

Compassionate power arising from the deep and vast expanse of wisdom, The supreme emanation, compassionate towards all beings,
Lord of the Three Families, inseparable from the Three Secrets,
May you return swiftly, Lord Chökyi Lödro!

Benefiting limitless sentient beings in limitless kalpas, Accomplished the bodhisattva’s activities, and
Attained the supreme stage of unity, in limitless realms,
May you return swiftly as the manifestation of these activities!

Particularly holding the traditional teachings of Dhagpo Kagyu,
The one who is incomparable in carrying out the Buddha’s teachings, Chökyi Lödro, the very root of the Practice Lineage,
May your Nirmanakaya return swiftly!

By the blessing of the truth of the infallible Three Jewels, Mahakala and his consort with their assemblies,
By the power of their unobstructed activities,
May all my aspirations be fulfilled as they were made.

May all that is virtuous and good flourish!
